MONROVIA, January 5 (LINA)-The National Elections Commission (NEC) over the weekend certificated 12 of the 15 Senators elected during the December 20, 2014 Special Senatorial Election.

The certification ceremony was held on Saturday, January 3 at the headquarters of the National Elections Commission in Monrovia.

In remarks at the ceremony, the Chairman of the Commission, Cllr. Jerome G. Korkoya,  said  the issuance of certificates to the senators-elect was a testimony of the power that was transferred to them by the people of Liberia when they went to the polls on December 20, 2014.

“The power that has been entrusted to you by the people comes with a great deal of expectation and responsibility. Expectation to change their living conditions by the laws you make and the programs you undertake.  Responsibility in the sense that each passing day you need to be reminded that there are people out there who are counting on you to move their lives forward. You cannot afford to disappoint their trust,” the NEC Boss said.

Chairman Korkoya said the NEC acknowledges the low turnout during the election and will take the necessary measures to encourage higher voter participation in future elections.

“Recognizing the fact that legislative and by-elections are often marred by voter apathy, the Commission will begin to take the necessary actions to increase voter participation through the conduct of robust CVE activities across the country. To achieve this, the Commission intends to expand its civic education campaign nationwide and calls on government and partners to support this initiative,” Chairman Korkoya intimated.
